I currently have 36807 active carts with 5 visitors and the active carts keeps rising. This has been happening for a few weeks now. I went to email about it and I don't have the option. Anyone else having this issue?

No, under customer behavior - live.... active carts ticked up for a while. It is currently showing correct now but every now and then it shoots up to over 1000 open active carts.

Did you ever get this resolved? It has been happening to my store for at least a month and it’s everyday. My active carts will show 15 but no one in my store or only a handful of visitors. It is happening every day and various times and is making me quite nervous. Could this be hackers, real traffic from a referral site or missed sales from a technical glitch?

Hi there, @vacationgrabs!

Thanks for joining this thread. 

 

I understand that you are experiencing similar issues with your analytics, and I would like to gather more information about this problem. Is this issue occurring specifically in the Live view section of the analytics within the Shopify Admin? Additionally, are you also encountering the same problem when viewing your Google Analytics? It would also be helpful to know if you have any integrations with our cart or checkout page, such as a Google Merchant Center shopping cart link, that could potentially be causing this issue.

 

We would be more than happy to continue assisting you through the available contact methods in our Help Center. If you see the chat assistant, you can ask to contact support, and it will guide you on the next steps to connect with a team member. Once you get in touch with support, we will be able to take a closer look at your specific situation and provide further assistance.

 

Please feel free to reach out if you have any additional questions or concerns. We look forward to resolving this issue for you.

Hi Mac,

Thanks for responding to my Active Carts response. To answer your questions; Yes, it's specifically happening in my Shopify live view. No, I don't see the same problem in my Google analytics. I do not have any cart or checkout page integrations with any 3rd party apps or gmc link. I will reach out through chat assistant for help. Thanks

Chat Support just responded to the issue: Gotcha, so this post was from 2 years ago and a lot of improvements have been made. With that said, this is an observed behavior pattern for bots as they use the same checkout token to initiate several checkout sessions. Which explains why you get increased active cart numbers. This is an issue that the developers are aware of and are constantly improving.

This is the number from half an hour ago on our site. It has now gone back to our regular cart numbers.

I am also having this issue for the past 2 days. Yesterday I had just over 500 active carts for about 20 minutes, then it gradually began to decrease. Right now I have 112 active carts with 4 people live on the site. What is happening?
